Karan Johar Announces He Will Not Be Returning With 'Koffee With Karan'

Akash Bhatnagar

When I was not a part of the Hindi film industry, it was Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan that became my source into the up and close life of my favourite film stars. I have lapped up on each and every episode of the show over its six seasons with multiple viewings of several episodes. Even today, I go back and watch many of my favourite ones when I need a little laugh or am feeling a little low. While I was eagerly awaiting news on the next season of the show, the filmmaker announced today that it won't be happening.

Recently, there were reports of the next season of Koffee With Karan being in development, but this morning Karan took to social media to share a heartfelt note where he announced the end of the series, leaving me a little heartbroken.

Check out his announcement here:

Karan wrote,

"Koffee With Karan has been a part of my life, and yours, for 6 seasons now. I'd like to think we've made an impact and even found our place in pop culture history. And so, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that Koffee With Karan will not be returning..."

Karan rightfully said that KWK has found a place in pop culture history as it has been the source of many iconic and sometimes controversial moments. It is the place where Alia Bhatt confessed to her crush on Ranbir Kapoor for the first time publicly, and today they are happily married. It is also the place where Varun Dhawan admitted to being in a relationship with now wife, Natasha Dalal.

Be it those memorable episodes like the 100th one with Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan, or the first chat show appearance of Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor together, KWK has achieved some rare feats. I also saw the reconciliation of Karan and Kajol on the show and so much more. It will surely go down as one of the most iconic shows in Indian TV history and while I will miss seeing any new episodes hereon, I am glad that I still have the whole catalogue of six seasons to re-watch and reminisce how special it was.
